I think I was spooning my olio spaghetti into my mouth when Angel
posted me a question. It went something like this– “What makes you start a blog?”
Aisehman, this young lady doesn’t seem to understand that orang tua like me just can’t multi-task. My brain was programmed to the eating mode at that moment and she decided to shoot such a mind-probing question. Anyway, I gently told her la, “Please don’t kacau la, when I’m eating. I may bite.”
**Burpssss**…..Okie, back to your question, Angel.
Hmmmmm……lemme think….**fingers tapping the table**
Ya, gua started blogging because……..
1) gua ‘chiak pa siaw eng’ (eat full, very free la) and gua kaypoh go and peeped at other people’s blogs. Wuuaah…..all kinds of everything you got there:-
sweeeeet sampai gigi pun wanna drop lidat;
sour sampai eyes also cannot open;
bitter until I almost choked myself in tears; and
the salty ones (ham-ham sup-sup) that caused my heart to palpitate.
Then the ‘kaypohness’ went up a notch and I started to type in my 1 sen worth of comments. Ehhh….got people comment on my comment wor. This is getting interesting liao. Gua sukaaaaa…….
2) gua pun naik lemak la and now wanna write my own stories. But then, what stories have I got to share ? What theme and style should I follow? What type of audience do I hope/wish to attract?...etc…etc….All these and more gave me cold fingers and fortunately, I found the answer in my warm heart – I just wanna share in my blog whatever that comes to my simple mind. Hence, merepek
3) I wanna learn and discover. I blog ‘incognito’ and through the few short months, I’ve got to know loads of cyberfrens from all over the world and I am truly thankful to all of you who have touched my life in more ways than one. Thanks once more, for all those beautiful stories and delightful banter. Just keep them coming, all you sayangs out there.
It was this sweet, sweet Angel
who graciously invited me for a first meet-up. She enticed me with an activity which I, errr…..errrmm…just could not resist. She arranged for a sinful ‘lick-a-lick-lick’ session. Aiyoh, lidat how to tahan la. I was soooo sexcited sampai cannot sleep and also nearly tripped on my sarong la. Thus a friendship was born on that beautiful afternoon with this group of wonderful people.
Ya, blogging led me to new friendships. And just last Friday evening and Saturday morning, I got to meet a few blogbabas (sengkor
, ah nel
, kenny ng
) and blognyonyas (Angel
, dr chen
) in the flesh. They are great company. Kamsiah again to Angel
, the event organizer par excellence!
, boleh la reasons macam ini, hor?
